My fan is one to two years old and never had a problem. The other day it was running and i turned it off unplugged it and carried to another room (never dropped or hit it) plugged it in and it wouldn't turn on, the outlet is fine. So is there a way to take it apart to fix it? thanks

Throw it away and buy a new one for 20 box at Wal-Mart. It's as simple as that cause to fix it, it'll take a new machine which cost twice the price. I think they made it to last one summer max. Friendly yours
could always be the battery, there is a curcit board in the remote in the fan the diod on this board proble went out if you take it out of the fan to check it there will be a burn color by the diod this does happen a lot you just need to go to a hardware store and replace it they run about 40 bucks to replace good luck
Unplug the fan.
Open it up carefully.
Look at the the wiring for damage or shorts.
Check that the fan impeller is free to turn.
If all of the above is OK then possibly the motor has gone? If so then it will probably be cheeper to buy a new one.

"Most fan motors for fan over running have an internal overload. once it trips, it will not reset. it is a solid state device. it looks like a flat device or a small bullet device. if you've figured out how to take the fan apart, you could just remove the device and connect the two wires together and the fan will run. you won't have any protection on the motor however. the windings run warm, but if the bearings run dry the motor will slow down and the windings will get hot. this is the reason for the overlaod device - protection. its your call what you want to have."
